Slots have become a bigger part of a lot of bingo sites of late. 888 Ladies Bingo for example have introduced a whole raft of new bonuses aimed at players who try out the casino and gaming elements. The good news for those players is the standard of slots available is rapidly improving and with games like Millionaire Genie with it's progressive jackpot a lot more appealing.
Millionaire Genie is 888's big slot game and it features on most, if not all, it's main brands. This means you'll find it on the likes of Wink Bingo, Loquax Bingo and other Dragonfish Network sites as well as 888 Casino and Moon Games. We've chosen to class it as a 'bingo slot' simply because it features on so many sites.
As you'd suspect from the title Millionaire Genie is an Arabian themed game. It's a 5 reel 15 payline slot with a progressive jackpot which is currently well over a million pounds in total. Players can choose to play from 1p through to 50p per line. However the 15 lines are fixed so wagering is from 15p to £7.50 a spin.
The game features wilds, sticky wilds, free spins and scatters plus there's a bonus round when three veiled ladies appear on the reels. During the bonus round you're treated to a belly dance and asked to select one lady followed by a goblet to determine multipliers and level of bonus.
During our trial of the game we were lucky enough to get the bonus round and scatter feature. These resulted in some decent wins including £60 on the scatter feature which gave us 13 free spins. These features are pretty good and cropped up in reasonable time frames. We really dislike slots where the features, wilds etc never seem to appear.
Overall we're very impressed with Millionaire Genie. The only negatives are some of the K, J and Q symbols are a bit too similar and the reels don't seem to be spin that much. On the plus side it's an enjoyable game with plenty of interest as well as that lovely progressive jackpot.
